Friday 15th January


Please listen to storytime led by Miss O'Shea or Mrs Morris. 

Can you make a cosy reading den ready for your storytime? 

Also, listen to some storytimes on Cbeebies. What was your favourite part of the story? You may be able to find some special Christmas stories to share with your family. 

Listen to some relaxing music, close your eyes and breathe slowly. Touch your nose when breathing in and rainbow breath out. Hold your tummy this time... Feel your tummy getting bigger as you breathe out and smaller as you breathe in. You could show your family how we do our 'calm time' in PSHE. 

Search on YouTube Cosmic Yoga. Can you copy the Yoga teacher?  

This term, our new PSHE topic is Dreams and Goals.


PSHE session: Parent to act out building a tower and then make it fall down. Don’t rebuild it and say that you’re giving up and leave it. Try doing some writing/drawing but again give up because you can’t do it. Then sit looking bored, saying things like you can’t do it, it’s too hard.


What will happen if I don’t try and give up easily on everything? Explain to the children that there are things we may not be good at and want to get better at. Give some examples of things they could work at in school or at home. What will happen if we don’t try and give up easily on everything? What would you do? How can you achieve your goal? You could send your child's responses as a poster or as a video. 

As a family, come up with a goal to achieve at home and talk about how you can achieve it​.
